Changes I exp. in the first 2 weeks
- gain weight (water weight is in the gained weight)
- very hungry and hungry all the time
- thirsty a lot
- had some mood swings
- good blood circulation (I didnt get as cold as quick)
- sore throat but no real voice change
- Horny!!! Lol and some dick growth
- got some random spotting which has since stopped
- more upper body strength (Anything and everything seems easier to lift)
- acne starting on my back, chest, and upper arms (- my face has tryed to break out some but hasnt, had more than 2 at a time)

Week 3 changes - after 2nd shot
- voice is starting to drop
- its dropped a little but is a noticable drop, as I've had comments how how my voice is starting to change and sounds a bit different
- feel very mellow and calm this weak
- dicklet grew some
- starting to notice more upper body muscle (its not much, but due to being so underweight pre T, Its noticable only to me, I believe)
- the inner part of my hips are sort of going away
- i think my skin texture is just barely starting to change
- happy trail is going higher
- acne on back, chest, upper arms a little worse
-my face has been pretty clear still, though its still trying to break out, but hasnt yet but I have heard that with Enathate, that you don't get as bad of acne on your face as other prescriptions for T
- fat from my moobs are starting to go somewhere else ( though I didn't have much to began with, due to my weight I was pre T)
- inner thigh hair is starting to get thicker


- - -note- - - I could or could not be exaggerating some of these, but these are things I've noticed

Loving life!!!! [Mar. 1st, 2010|09:44 pm]

I can't believe what I have accomplished in just under 4 months. I got myself set up for volunteer work(for work exp) and I Love what I do when I volunteer. I've set myself up for housing which I'm signing the lease tomorrow!!! I was able to find a doctor to prescribe me T and come up with more than enough funds to start T, in just barely over a month(I got most of it in less than a week, the last week before my appointment).I'm on T!!!! I averaged a 12.7 grade equivlent on the Tabe test for school. I was accepted for General studies 6 days after finishing the tabe test. I'll be going to school starting in the Fall of this year. I have disability rolling and waiting till I get approved. I'm approved for dvr (thoe I'm trying to get a different counsoler to work with as the one they gave to me is a bitch). I have the most confedence ever!!! I'm starting to feel more comfortable in my skin. I'm hoping disability takes a good 6 or 7 more months that way when I'm approved I can use the big check on top surgery as I can get top surgery done locally for roughly $5000 and have a little extra where I'll probably buy some new clothes and other stuff. So I hope to get top surgery by years end as that would be awesome!!! And would be one hell of a way to end a GREAT Year!!!

I'm very excited for this next year!!!

I'm 16 days post T, and I had a bit of a sore throat over night and just recently I've noticed that to myself my voice is suddenly sounding a little bit lower and feeling like its getting ready to crack. I took an audio of my voice just now to help me compare and it seems a little lower than it was. Just wanted to put this up so I don't forget the day.

Very happy I'm on T [Feb. 18th, 2010|08:34 pm]

I weighed 103 right before I started T, and in the last week I've managed to gain about 7 pounds, which is great!!! Not only is T helping me with my gender dysphoria its helping me put on weight that I need to keep. I can't believe I let myself get down to 103, as I don't even try to diet or anything. All my life I've always been very underweight(I have a very high metabolism, and being underweight when young runs in my family) no matter how much I try to eat, I can't hold weight I gain. Lol now I eat two or three times I used to eat and drink 3-4 times more liquids due to thirst now. Lol my stomach is a bottomless pit right now. Emotionally I'm doing great! I had a bad day on Tuesday which mad me real moody and sort of felt like I had this huge battle in me. I'm thinking its from the T and E as they are at battle right now. Tomorrow is my one week on T, and I'm very excited when I get to do my 2nd shot in one more week! I found since starting T I don't take crap like I used to, if someone pisses me off, I'll let them know. I think with being on T is also great as E based breast cancer runs in my family, so by transitioning thats also helping me with not having as high of a chance (I will get top surgery eventually). My gender dysphoria is starting to get a little better since knowing my body will start to change due to starting T.

Yesterday at 8:30am I got my first shot of T! [Feb. 13th, 2010|06:24 am]

[mood |excitedexcited]

I feel excited to start these changes!

Somethings I've exp. since I got my shot was, even though I know some maybe in my head due to excitement

- oily taste in my mouth
- I smell different, more like a guy, I believe
- a sore/scratchy throat
- a little bit of dicklet growth, I swear it feels like something is growing down there already
- got some nausea out of the blue, but its better now
- I slept GREAT last night!
- my mind feels more clear (i had some issues with some brain fog in the past)
- I have (IC) which makes me use the bathroom a lot, and since the shot, I haven't gone anywhere near as much (I sure hope it stays that way, as that would be awesome!
- the thigh I injected the T into is a bit sore
- Sinus pain - no stuffed up or runny nose, just sinus pain/pressure






ADDING : As of 26 hours post T, I'm starting to become interested in SEX a lot more! and finding myself staring more at certain area's on others (pictures right now)


Oh and I'm already feeling a bit more upper strength and don't get tired as fast when having to use my arm muscles (could be in my head thoe)

I get to start T on Weds! [Feb. 8th, 2010|06:48 pm]
Taylor
[mood |excitedexcited]

My doctor said he will be calling my local Target to get me the prescription, he's having me wait till then, as he's gonna talk to a local surgeon who could do top surgery for me for roughly $5000, so that's why I'm waiting. I'm soo very excited! and he didn't do any blood work actually, and I was told for future lab work, that I'll get a discount and We'll set up a payment plan. Anyone have any hints on how I should do my first injection on Weds night? I'll update this with my dosage and type of T.


Oh and in a week or two I get my own place!!!! Today has been the BEST Day of my life! This week is the BEST Week ever! This Month is the BEST Month ever!

Just one more day till my appointment! [Feb. 6th, 2010|10:01 pm]
Taylor
I'm getting excited for this appointment! In just 35 hours and 40 min, I will be having my appointment with the doctor who will be helping me with T, I just hope he starts me on that day! As I want to and hope I can! That will be awesome! While I'm also open to knowing he could make me wait and come back after that first one, as I don't know how he works with his Trans, patients as I haven't talked to any of his transgendered patients who went to him. I'll be the first ftm patient he has had, as he's used to working with mtf patients.

Oh and just 2 more weeks till my 23rd birthday!

I have been accepted for General Studies at NWTC. I'm very happy and even though I knew I was gonna get in, after recieving that acceptance letter, I started to realize my life is starting to turn a corner, a corner where it only gets better. I can't believe what I have accomplished in the short amount of time that I've been back home already. I wasn't even expecting myself to do as well as I have when I left Florida. My social anxiety is gone too, I probably talk too much while I volunteer, lol, and I enjoy helping out there and have a lot of fun. I'll be transfering to UWGB from NWTC after I complete my General Studies classes, so I can get my Masters in Psychology.

Feb. 8th is my day for my appointment for the doctor who will help me with T (I hope he starts me on that day, and doesn't have me wait, but I guess I'll see)

I will admit I just caught myself, realizing how weird it is, to not have to have permission to buy something, while I'm not buying anything or have any plans right now, what made it weird, is that I enjoy checking out goodwill auctions and I just got a feeling that I realised that if i wanted to buy anything, I could do it without permission like how I had to in Florida.

I have high convidence! Life is getting a lot better and I'm enjoying life a lot more now! I have a life actually and it feels Great!

My how life has changed in 2 months [Dec. 31st, 2009|12:27 pm]
Taylor

I have an appointment for a gyno who will help me with getting on T. Only thing is I'm not sure if I'll get on T by the end of the first appointment or how many it will take. I'm currently half way to my goal for money for the appointment :D. In a little over a week, Jan. 11th is the day of the appointment :D.

I'm signing up for Welding at the local tech school, I'll start in Fall of 2010. I have an awesome counselor there who I am working with for school, she uses the correct pronouns and name, she's very understanding.

I'm gonna start to volunteer till I get things started with DVR (due to my stuttering I'm gonna work with them, hopefully get a speecheasy device through them)


Things are going very good right now and very excited for 2010!!!

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Would anyone know of endo/doctor who would prescribe T with informed consent by the Green Bay Wisc. [Nov. 17th, 2009|10:30 am]
Taylor
Area? I just got my papers for name change (which I'll be changing my name legally once I get a job. I'm having a tough time trying to find someone who would even prescribe hormones in Green Bay and would really like info about Endo's/doctors who are not bias about helping a person who is trans. to start hormones.
